Wage and hour defense attorneys not only help employers combat false claims, but help businesses avoid claims altogether. By crafting and implementing legally-sound EPLI Policy, we help you avoid litigation and ward off meritless wage and hour claims.
Here are some of the most common wage and hour claims to look out for:
- Unpaid Breaks – If you mandate that your employees work through lunches/breaks, then they need to be paid for that time. Failure to do so can result in a lawsuit that costs you time, money, and headache.
- Unpaid Meetings/Training – If your workers need to fulfill training or attend certain meetings, then they should be receiving pay for the time spent on those activities.
- Unpaid/Underpaid Overtime – According to the FLSA, if your employees work more than 40 hours over the span of 7 days, they are entitled to 1.5 their normal hourly wage in overtime pay for all time over the 40-hour mark.
- Work Travel – If you send your employee on a work-related trip, then you need to be prepared to pay them for their time. This includes their time spent traveling, in meetings, etc.
